Trying something new

In reading workshop, I consistently use the release of responsibility model where I have all of the responsibility for thinking and reading and gradually I hand over more responsibility to the class.

This year, I am trying something new in writing workship...the same thing! We are studying punctuation and Thursday, I modeled a conversation with input from the class. We created a shared writing experience. Today, we looked at tag lines. I'm hoping that by doing this, I will scaffold their writing just a bit further.
